Dual 590GTX and HD6990!!!!!!!!!!

What? do they plan on playing BF3 on a JumboTron in Times square?

jokes aside i really appreciate DICE taking the time to do this as there are some Gamers out there with $1500 worth of GPU power in their PC's and i'm sure they will be happy with the optimization and proper driver support!

More reason to wait and get the upcoming GPUs from Ati and Nvidia then.

To bad they aren't releasing new cards this year.

I'm rocking dual EVGA GTX 590 Classifieds so I'm good to go.

Marcus Fenix2582d ago

1 thing I wish they've added to the GTX 590s was more SLI connectors so u can connect 4 whole cards of those, that machine would make earth melt, also u r a rich bastard btw.

I'm not rich but I do have a fair amount of disposable income that goes primarily to my gaming hobby. I spend roughly 10k per year on gaming but that includes hardware (new displays, sound, PC, perps and games). This year though I am probably going to go well over that yearly budget by about 5 additional K. I am doing a lot of upgrades.
